Eclipse Bus Tour

Monday, April 8  | 7:30 am - 6:00 pm

There's an exciting astronomical event coming to the United States next year – a total solar eclipse!

For three minutes, the world will be transformed: day will become night and the Sun will be replaced by a slender ring of fire. April 8, 2024 will be the last total solar eclipse visible from the Continental U.S. until 2044, so this is a must-see event for everyone. But the total eclipse won’t be visible from Nashville.

To bring this breathtaking event to Nashville residents, Adventure Science Center has partnered with the Evansville Museum to host a special event in the path of totality. The only way to attend this event is to join the Total Solar Eclipse Bus Tour.

COST: Members - $160 | Nonmembers - $180

Due to bus regulations, children of any age must pay full price.

Deadline to purchase tickets: January 26, 2024.

Join astronomer and Director of the Sudekum Planetarium, Dr. Morgan Rehnberg, for this day-long, all-inclusive trip. There’s no easier or more unique way to experience this day of wonder.

The Total Solar Eclipse Bus Tour includes:

  • Transportation to and from the event on a motor coach with included restroom.
  • Unlimited access to the Evansville Museum, including exhibits on science, history, and art, as well as a visit to the planetarium.
  • Eclipse-themed activities, lectures, and science panels.
